World View III: Christianity Answers the 21st Century
Over two semesters the course examines the succession of world views of the 20th Century
Four very important questions are answered in the final study of world views:
1 - Why did the West reject Christianity?
2 - What were the effects of this shift away from Christianity?
3 - How are we as Christians to live in the 21st Century?
4 - What do we say as Christians to the 21st Century culture?
World Views Year III is designed to give the Christian answers to the secular thinking of the 20th Century. The study addresses the secular ideas that are presented in college classes, and the culture at large. Understanding these ideas, addressing their claims, and learning to articulate the Christian response in the following five areas is the focus of this study:
1 - The Nature of Ultimate Meaning to Life - Philosophy and Literature
2 - The Origin of the Universe - Biology and Geology
3 - The Nature of Man - Psychology and Sociology
4 - The Nature of Truth and Morals - Sociology and Religion
5 - Man's Relationship to Nature – Ecology and Environmentalism
